Falling from Grace, is an interesting book to read as the novel has been skillfully crafted and written to keep the characters and the readers on their toes. In my opinion, the story line revolves around tense and ambiguous events that are narrated from two viewpoints. It is captivating especially since the story begins on such an ordinary level and later translates to and extraordinary event. The protagonists are caught unaware and puts them in situation where they doubt themselves and their relationships. Each character evolves throughout the book from when they were first introduced. Also, as the weather changes so does the situation involving the two sisters. The coming of the storm may symbolize the coming struggle of looking for a loved one. I also think the setting of the story also plays a key role in the novel. The setting is in a rugged Victorian coast called Point Nepean. In reality, Point Nepean has a wild and unpredictable nature as seen throughout in the story. I feel the book focuses heavily on creation of tension. The author has carefully created situations where tension builds up. For example, the author compares winter and summer seasons. The authors says that in winter the ocean is not as welcoming as it is in summer. Additionally, the author uses both extremes in terms of weather. The stormy weather is a sign of difficult times ahead while in the beginning the weather was fair as the two sisters were playing a game. The change of weather and inclusion of darkness creates the tension that something bad is about to happen. The fact that this story is told from alternating points, it has an adolescent tone. Annie is scared that she may not ever see her sister again and rethinks their relationship while replaying the occurrence of her disappearing. On the other hand, Kip recalls the events of that day as a teenager seeking freedom from his parents. The story shows the concerns and fears of adolescents who have a responsibility to their families. It shows the consequences of the choices, actions and words of adolescents.Descriptive Summary
